International friendly matches are always a tough sell but there is less than two weeks to go until the World Cup starts and places in the England team up for grabs so what would people be talking about at Wembley?
Sturridge's wonder goal?
Whether Welbeck should start ahead of Sterling?
Should Rooney really be guaranteed a start?
No – forget all that nonsense – the storyline that captured the public's imagination was a bloody paper aeroplane.

I'll tell you one thing about the English, they love a good paper aeroplane! — Michal Lodej (@mglodej) May 30, 2014
My main memory from my visit to Wembley will be a moment of sheer skill, perfection and beauty - a paper aeroplane hit one of the players. — Alex (@Cllnsn) May 30, 2014
Say what you will about England fans, but it's clear we have some world class paper aeroplane makers amongst us! — Charlotte Hale (@Charl_Hale) May 30, 2014
To the person who made that paper aeroplane that flew from the top tier to the pitch has got skills... Got a bigger cheer then the goal! — Nathan Baker (@Nathan_Bakes) May 30, 2014

The paper aeroplanes got plenty of time on the pitch, and the injured Theo Walcott certainly would have liked to have been there, but instead he was stuck in the ITV studio.
Theo Walcott looks like he's won a competition to be on telly. — cluedont (@cluedont) May 30, 2014
On the pitch it was pretty hard to judge the performance of the players in such a low-key game but nevertheless Glen Johnson managed to earn some enemies.
Kyle Walker > Glen Johnson. Nathaniel Clyne > Glen Johnson. Gary Neville now > Glen Johnson. — Footy Humour (@FootyHumour) May 30, 2014

Can't think of one decent thing Henderson has done — Tony Morley (@Tonymorley2000) May 30, 2014
Henderson for MOTM. Honestly such a good player! — walid. (@WalidMohB) May 30, 2014
But hey, you can’t argue with 3-0, and with the mighty Peru now slain, surely there is no stopping England.
Until next time.
